Well its nice that Kobe catched some fire in the second half but it pisses me off when he keeps shooting when its not falling. Its pathetic to see him brick shot after shot. 15-36 is not exactly what I want to see. I would rather see a 11-20 shooting or something like that specially against the Knicks without any Kobe stopper. He has to play smarter. Its irresponsible to kill the flow and the momentum of the game just to get his touch back.
Its a VERY important win but this was neither a Kobe MVP performence nor a playoff team performence. AT least the defense worked in the second half and the back-court defense was great.
I just don´t understand why Kobe keeps shooting when he EXACTLY knows he will miss it? Its just stabborn and not smart. Kobe wants to show he is trying but we already know he is. In the first 3-4 games he was the best player in the league and in the last 4 he is more AI than MJ.
I know he can do better, thats why I´m angry. If I knew he can´t do better I would have been happy. Kobe is the best player in the league and the best one in creating shots for himself and he is one of the best all-rounder. If your jumper doesn´t work, you have to find ways to still be efficient on the floor.
These days it feels like you take away his jumper and he kills the team. he has SO many ways to be effective, just needs to use them. Maybe its an order by Jax the way Kobe plays, nobody knows it.
The triangle has been anything but a high efficient offense. Our terrible spacing makes it barely possible to drive. Our bigs are also asked to do a better job. Mihm had 3 good games in a raw. props for that. And Bynum with 2 blocks AGAIN in 6 minutes. WOW and Lamar needs to show some efficiency. WTF with those amount of 3s?
